If you live in southern Arizona now is the time to move if you can. Mexican drug runners and executioners armed with automatic weapons now control three counties stretching from the border to Phoenix.
“We are outgunned, we are out manned and we don’t have the resources here locally to fight this,” admitted Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu during on news conference last week in Casa Grande. “We are three counties deep. How is it that you see pictures like these, not American with semi and fully automatic rifles. How is that okay?”
A large area once used for family hiking and off road vehicles now has government signs warning residents of drug and human smugglers. Night vision cameras have photographed cartel members with military arms delivering drugs to vehicles along Highway 8, according to Borderland Beat.
Last week Fox News reported that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has closed part of the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge on the Arizona border due to the danger posed by Mexican narco terrorists and human smugglers. “Critics say the United States is in effect giving a major strip of the Southwest back to Mexico,” Fox reported.
Police are hunted down and killed in the narco corridor. Sheriff Babeu said an ambush last month mirrored military tactics. Five weeks ago Deputy Louie Puroll was ambushed and shot as he tracked six drug smugglers.
In 2005, Rep. Tom Tancredo, a Colorado Republican and at the time chairman of the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus, denounced the Mexican military for escorting drug smugglers across the border.

Also in 2005, a U.S. Justice Department memo said the U.S.-trained paramilitary Zetas commandos work with the Gulf cartel to move drugs into Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and the states of California, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida. The murderous Zetas provide firepower, security and the force needed to oversee shipments of narcotics and smuggled aliens along the border and up Interstate 35, which runs through Texas and Oklahoma, according to WorldNetDaily.
In May, it was reported that elements of the Mexican army are colluding with the Sinaloa cartel, which is locked in a battle for the territory of Juarez.
In 2006, Border Patrol Union President T.J. Bonner detailed incidents in which U.S. agents were chased and fired upon in Texas by what he characterized as Mexican soldiers operating inside U.S. borders. Bonner testified before the House Homeland Security Investigations Subcommittee.
The Mexican military routinely violates the U.S.-Mexican border. In 2006, Border Patrol officials acknowledged that over the past decade the Department of Homeland Security has reported 231 incursions along the border, including 63 in Arizona. Homeland Security defines an incursion as an unauthorized crossing by Mexican military or police, or suspected drug or people smugglers dressed in uniforms.
“Babeu said he doesn’t believe the drug cartel problems will not be solved when SB 1070 becomes a law, or with President Obama’s promise of 1,200 troops spread out among four border states,” notes Borderland Beat.
On June 18, 2010, Arizona Republican Senator Jon Kyl told an audience at a North Tempe Tea Party town hall meeting that during a private, one-on-one meeting with Obama in the Oval Office he was told that if he was to secure the border, Republicans would have no reason to support “comprehensive immigration reform,” in other words the legalization of illegal aliens currently in the country.
Southern Arizona is now unofficially part of the Mexican narco state. Obama does not plan to address the problem because he intends to use it as a political football in order to push through legislation to legalize millions of people who have entered the country illegally, go on welfare rolls, and bankrupt many states.
The massive influx of illegal aliens is part of a plan by the global elite to erode the sovereignty of the United States — under the rubric of the North American Union — and flood the country with low wage workers that will ultimately reduce the living standards of American workers.
A number of people have offered to help the police take back the state from narco terrorists. In response, the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office issued the following press release:
PCSO Response to Citizen Offers of Assistance
With the recent national attention brought about by the signing of Arizona S.B. 1070 into law, the recent shooting of a Pinal County Sheriff’s Office Deputy and the spate of national media attention focusing on the serious illegal alien situation in Pinal County, our office has been literally flooded with offers of assistance from citizens around the state and the nation.
The Sheriff’s Office is appreciative of the offers which have come from so many patriotic and concerned citizens who are willing to come to Pinal County Arizona at their own expense and put themselves at our disposal to assist in enforcement and apprehension efforts.
The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office has no authority to restrict or prohibit any citizen in their freedom to travel to Arizona, nor do we desire to do so. That said, we are not in a position to accept such offers due to a variety of reasons.
The Sheriff’s Office is involved in a number of cooperative interdiction and enforcement efforts with local, state and federal agencies with the goal of gaining and maintaining control of the known smuggling corridors within Pinal County.
The self-insertion of well-meaning, non-uniformed, citizens into this area would potentially expose those citizens to potential extreme hazard from contact with bad actors. In addition, the presence of well-meaning citizens in the area of operation would raise the potential of a â€˜friendly fire’ or a mistaken encounter with friendly forces scenario, in which enforcement personnel assigned to the area may not recognize a patriotic citizen in a volatile or high-stress situation.
The Sheriff’s Office appreciates that so many supportive Americans are willing to sacrifice of their safety, their funds and of their time to stop this criminal activity, yet we must clearly state that we can not accept any of these offers to assist in our developing efforts.
If there were to be a change in status or some other unforeseen circumstance, we know that many citizens stand ready, willing and able to respond to a call to rally and assist.
Our Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu has been an outspoken leader on this issue. Two months ago, Sheriff Babeu stood with 10 local Police Chiefs and Senator McCain in calling on President Obama to immediately deploy 3,000 soldiers to secure our Arizona border. The President announced the deployment of only 1,200 three weeks ago and there is still no action. We must deploy armed soldiers, build the double barrier fence and end catch and release.
Once again, thank you for your patriotism.

Meanwhile, armed citizens have ignored the Deputy and plan to confront the narco terrorists. From Weasel Zippers:
PINAL COUNTY, AZ — A group of citizens plans to arm themselves with heavy weaponry and patrol the Vekol Valley area of Pinal County, looking for drug smugglers entering the country. They plan to conduct their patrol operation from 3:00pm Saturday to 3:00pm Sunday.
“We’re going to block off the narcoterrorists that come up through this area,” said Mesa resident Jason “J.T.” Ready, who is organizing the gathering.
Ready says volunteers are coming from all over Arizona, and even out of state, to support the effort.
“This is the Minuteman Project on steroids,” Ready explained. “We’ve got people with assault weapons. We will use lawful, deadly force where appropriate.”
